    Yes, pollution can lead to climate change.  In fact, the earth is going through a global warming at present.  Greenhouse gases, one of which is carbon dioxide, which is being released as pollution, effects the climate.  While carbon dioxide is a natural part of earth’s atmosphere, when the percentage of it rises in the composition of the atmoshpere, the weather and climate will be affected.

    Definitely.  Aerosol particles suspended in the atmosphere from human emissions can absorb, reflect, and scatter solar radiation.  So, aerosol particles can have a significant effect on the amount of radiation/warmth reaching the Earth’s surface.
